The Short Vowel Picture Cards
The Short Vowel Picture Cards are used to help the student learn and review the vowel sounds. On these cards the student views the letter and picture together. Then when the student sees the letter only, he or she recalls the picture and recalls the letter's sound. Dots appear on the Short Vowel Picture Cards to show the student where to start writing letters; arrows show which way to continue.
